They say books have the potential to open a whole new world to you.

Girls of India
The fun gets doubled when the journey is through time. Puffin Books, an imprint of Penguin Books, is offering you the chance to go away from the pitter-patter of the city into different time periods in India.

Flip a page and take a chance to meet people unknown and cities unexplored such as Tanjore, Bagasra village of Harappa civilisation and Pataliputra, and to unlock the mystery of ages that are covered in dust bringing powerful people of history such as the Chola king and famous King Ashoka alive once more through your imagination.

More importantly, it is the girls -- twelve-year olds Raji, Avani and the maid Madhura -- who will be leading this historical adventure. Girls of India series has already hit the bookstores with: A Chola Adventure by Anu Kumar, A Harappan Adventure by Sunila Gupte and A Mauryan Adventure by Subhadra Sen Gupta. Each title in this series is priced at R199. Pick a mystery, we say.
